Top notch ride on Jayberry last night after work.  I didn’t have time to go far but it was a lot of fun to get out of the house and use muscles that don’t get used on the trainer.  I have a long way to go before I’m anywhere near prepared for the Police Unity Tour again.

I’ve been feeling like I’m on the right track even if the scale doesn’t move and my pants don’t fit any better.

I have a busy weekend ahead.  I’m sure it will fly right by but hopefully I can come out of it still on tack.


I made some teriyaki pork chops in the crock pot.  Well, Brent did.  I just left the ingredients and the recipe card on the counter for him. 

This was our first teriyaki recipe and it turned out pretty darn good!!

I’m now headed to bed early – I need some sleep!

I’m up early on my first day off.  I signed up for an intro to tax class for small businesses back in November.  It’s just a few hours this morning and it’s hosted by a CPA through the county small business development center.  I always used to work on Thursdays so I could never go without taking time off.

I’m going to hit the grocery store on the way back home and then finish putting away the Christmas decorations.  I don’t have too much left to put away but it needs to get done.

Just call me Suzy Homemaker


Homemade zucchini bread.  It’s not bad for a first attempt.  I think it needs some more spice – maybe some nutmeg.  And maybe even some walnuts. 

I’ve felt like a zombie all week.  I haven’t done much in terms of morning walking and afternoon exercise.  I haven’t spent much time reading.  Only one more day to go and maybe I can catch up on my sleep this weekend.


I made spaghetti and meatballs for dinner using the homemade pasta sauce my mom and I made last fall.  I also made some garlic Italian muffins (more like biscuits).  It was a pretty scrumptious meal.

I then went to volleyball where we got out tails kicked.  Blergh.  Now I’ll try to get about 5 hours of sleep and try to survive in zombie mode tomorrow.



Our trip to Laramie over the weekend was a lot of fun.  We spent some time with friends and then headed up to the Snowy Range for some snowshoeing.

We started from Little Laramie Trailhead after checking out the cluster that is snowmobiling season towards Green Rock Trailhead.  I’m not sure which trail we were actually snowshoeing because there was no map at the trailhead.  Ummm, get on the Wyoming.  We snowshoed out for about 45 minutes and then turned around and came back.  It was right at an hour and half and over 3 miles according to the Fitbit.

The weather was great and there was barely even a breeze!  I’d like to get back up there again and hike some of the other trails and loops from the same trailhead.



I had this grand plan to cut out some hearts with my Cricut machine so I could make Valentine’s decorations.  I have the paper and the cartridge ready to go.  But I can’t find the darn cord to plug in the machine!!  I’ve looked everywhere… you know, except where it actually is.  This is so frustrating that I’m about ready to scream.  My office is clean.  I can see everywhere it would be possibly be and yet… no cord.

I’m taking a break to eat lunch.
